SMANA Partnerships
“Individual commitment to a group effort -- that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” – Vince Lombardi

SMANA cannot advance behavior change for social good alone, which is why we have been working hard to build partnerships, collaborate, and support others in their work; all in an effort to grow our community of practice. Some highlights include partnering with the Federal Communicators Network where we collaborated to hold a social marketing 101 webinar that reached more than 170 people, and working with the American Marketing Association’s Washington, DC and Charlottesville, VA chapters to hold successful, in-person social marketing 101 interactive seminars.

SMANA became a partner in the American Public Health Association’s, Year of Climate Change and Health campaign and attended the conference in Atlanta to represent SMANA at the invite-only Climate Change and Health Roundtable. Since this topic intersects both public health and the environment, having SMANA members work together on this issue is a win-win.

Most recently, SMANA worked with the Partnership for Food Safety to hold the first webinar in a series of four webinars about behavior change. Over 450 people joined the presentation to learn about community-based social marketing. If you have any partnership ideas to help grow and support SMANA, please email SMANA at [email protected]
